Just a quick one... seeing that it's today, has anyone seen any good April Fools?

I've taken a quick glance at a few newspapers and the Register, but not seen anything that looks as if it is one yet...

Apparantly London Zoo has been complaining about numerous calls made to the Zoo and the individuals then asking to speak to a Mr Lyon.

They're response to these calls now are like follows: Sorry Mr Lion is asleep at the moment, could Mr elephant be of some assistance.

I meant things like an advert I once saw for an NEC phone I think it was, promising live video calls and a full colour screen... available 1st April for £1499.

I mean, no-one would ever make a phone that did that would they?

It was Mr C Lion. and Mr G Raffe. What about the one Richard Dimbelbey did about Spaghetti growing on trees???
